Peter Greenaway constructs an alphabet for and with his daughter Zoë as a blueprint of his life.

‘Art is life and life is art' is the motto of 75-year old artist and filmmaker Peter Greenaway so for (and with) his daughter Zoë he makes a blueprint of his life, shaped in an alphabet.  'A is for alphabet', 'No, A is for autism. Daddy, you are autistic. You don't even look me in the eyes when you talk to me. You have no friends!' 'That might be true, but then I might have no enemies either'.His wife Saskia Boddeke films Peter as he battles with time: his plans are bigger than his future is long.
